Man from Toronto
Netflix’s latest film is about a case of mistaken identity when a chaotic salesman is forced to team up with a killer after the two confuse each other on Airbnb. It’s a star-studded cast with Kevin Hart as the salesman and Woody Harrelson as the assassin known as “The Man From Toronto.”
The film documents the rise of the Antetokounmpo brothers and their journey into the NBA, including how Giannis (Uche Agada) and Thanasis (Ral Agada) learn about the game while their parents struggle to survive and support their children in Greece. After his abilities were finally recognized by an agent, Giannis entered the NBA Draft in 2013, then became league MVP in 2019 and 2020. He also led the Milwaukee Bucks to their first championship.
This psychological thriller follows Becky Green (Erin Doherty), who is obsessed with stalking her childhood friend Chloe Fairbourne (Poppy Gilbert). Becky begins by tracking Chloe’s success on social media, growing jealous of her husband, friends, and friend’s popularity. While the plot sounds predictable and very “White Single Woman,” there are a lot of twists and turns in this one. Must-see.
Human vs. Bee
“Mr. Bean” takes on the role of a bee as Rowan Atkinson, playing a homeless man who is a housekeeper, dealing with insects in this comedy series.
This new comedy series stars “Saturday Night Live” alum Maya Rudolph as Molly Novak, a wife with everything.

The one that managed to escape
This new reality series gives six singles a chance to look back before they can move forward in their search for love. Been there, done that, right? Wrong. A twist allows contestants to explore missed connections as people from their pasts enter through “The Portal” to see if there’s still a spark that can be lit. The surprise of this premise promises awkward excitement and we’re here for it. Singer Betty Who hosted the show.
Money Theft: Korea — The Common Economic Area
For those still bemoaning the loss of “Money Heist” (the Spanish crime drama that ended last year), the spin-off has finally arrived. This South Korean version features a hostage crisis situation that also involves a strategist in charge of a group of criminals with various skills. The best part is that these robbers were inspired by their Spanish counterparts.
If you’ve ever felt like the show was smarter than you, “Westworld” might be it. While the twists and turns of the drama about the dawn of artificial consciousness and new life on Earth were fantastic in its first season, the storylines get even more confusing. That said, the Emmy-winning series is still marked on many calendars. Hopefully you don’t have to set aside too much time to dissect each episode in this fourth season.
